January 15, 2008 Logitech’s Squeezebox Duet network music system integrates home audio by allowing users to access Internet radio, online subscription services and their personal music library, wirelessly, through any speaker system in their house without switching on a computer.
The new Squeezebox system uses a pocket sized remote to control existing speaker setups throughout the home via Squeezebox Duet receivers. The Receiver uses 802.11g wireless technology to reduce space concerns and remain highly portable. A user can move a single receiver around the house, or connect multiple receivers to the Controller for a more permanent setup. Multiple receivers allow users to listen to a different song in each room, or synchronize their receivers to hear the same tune throughout the house.

The service also enables users to put their own digital music collection to the network so that it can be accessed without the use of a computer.
